Default Teen Arrested for Tweeting Something Not Nice

[arrested for 'allegedly malicious tweeting']

Teenager arrested over 'abusive' tweets to Tom Daley

A 17-year-old has been arrested after allegedly malicious tweets were sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley accusing him of letting his late father down.

By Telegraph reporters 8:40AM BST 31 Jul 2012
834 Comments

Dorset Police have confirmed the teenager was arrested on suspicion of malicious communications at a guest house in Weymouth following a series of abusive messages.

Daley and his partner Pete Waterfield missed out on a medal yesterday when they finished fourth in the men's synchronised 10m platform diving event at the Olympics.

Shortly afterwards, Daley retweeted a message from user Rileyy69 which said: "You let your dad down i hope you know that."

Daley responded by tweeting: "After giving it my all...you get idiot's sending me this..."

Daley's father Rob died last year from brain cancer.

Angry punter demands winnings for
Olympics Opening Ceremony UFO bet


Quote:
Tyre giant Goodyear are claiming that the alleged UFO was a blimp of theirs with the branding removed.

A spokesman said: ďWe are not official sponsors of the Olympics so we had to remove our branding from the blimp which has been flying around the country for months.

ďIt was being used by an NBC camera crew on the night of the opening ceremony, so we assume that the UFO people are talking about was in fact our blimp.Ē

This tweeting business.. it's totally insane. If someone doesn't want to get a nasty comment, well, maybe they shouldn't have a tweetline or whatever the fuck it is.

Most of the members of this forum would be serving life in prison under these new speech laws.

In the UK hurting someone's feelings is a criminal offense?

You'd think Brits would be even more radical than the U.S. nationalists since they're probably one of the most controlled peoples. Well beyond the tipping point when you can be arrested for saying something someone doesn't like.

You can set your profile as private so people can't view your updates or message you.

If someone were that sensitive you'd think they would do that instead.

Instead we have all these PSA's about how hurtful bullying is. A bunch of pussies who need to be coddled their entire lives.

According to the Daily Mail, the teen tweeted that he wanted to drown Daley, which I suppose they construed as a death threat. Still a bit silly, though.

Default Qatada loses bid to be freed during Olympics

Quote:
Radical preacher Abu Qatada lost his latest bid for freedom today.

Two judges at the High Court in London rejected his challenge against his continuing detention by Home Secretary Theresa May.

The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (Siac) ruled two months ago that the detention of Qatada, who is fighting deportation to Jordan, was lawful.


Leaving him free during heightened security for the 2012 Olympics would be 'exceptionally problematic', a judge said.



Lord Justice Hughes, sitting with Mr Justice Silber, said the court was 'quite satisfied' that Qatadaís judicial review application should be dismissed.

After the decision was announced, lawyers for Qatada indicated they would consider taking the case to the Court of Appeal once they have seen the courtís reasons for its ruling.


Qatada, referred to in court as Omar Mahmoud Othman, was seeking bail while he fights deportation.

After today's ruling, a Home Office spokeswoman said: 'Qatada is a dangerous man and we are pleased the High Court has agreed that he should remain behind bars.'

The intention is to remove him 'as quickly as possible'.

The spokeswoman said: 'We are confident the assurances we have secured from the Jordanian government will allow us to do that.'

Qatada challenged a decision by a Siac judge in May that his detention remained lawful and that releasing him during the Olympics would be 'exceptionally problematic' as the security services - already under pressure from the Games - would have difficulty supervising him.

During today's High Court hearing, his lawyers said the Islamic cleric had been detained for seven years.

It was 'the longest period of administrative detention, so far as we know, in modern English history,' said Edward Fitzgerald QC.

'Our submission is that the detention has already gone on for so long as to be disproportionate and unlawful.'

Government counsel Robin Tam QC said Qatada was described in one court judgment as 'a truly dangerous individual' who was at the centre in the UK of terrorist activities associated with al Qaeda.


The national security basis for his continued detention was well proved, argued Mr Tam.

Siac was in the best position to know what had been said about Qatada at different times over the years, he said.

In recent bail submissions there had been references to threats made by the al Qaeda high command this spring.

There was also a real risk that Qatada would, if granted bail, 'abscond and go to ground'.

Qatada, who is said to have wide and high-level support among Islamic extremists, was convicted in his absence in Jordan of involvement with terror attacks in 1998 and faces a retrial in his home country.

Qatada, who is accused of involvement in several bomb attacks, is being held at high-security Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire.

A judge described him as the late Osama bin Ladenís right-hand man in Europe.

He featured in hate sermons found on videos in the flat of one of the September 11 bombers.

Repeated failed attempts by UK governments over the last 10 years to deport the radical cleric have cost nearly £1 million in legal fees, Government figures show.

No figures have been given for how much Qatada has received in legal aid and some estimates put the cost of keeping him in the UK, either in a high-security jail or closely monitored under strict conditions in the community, along with the legal costs of the fight to deport him, at more than £3 million.

How can someone take a threat about drowning an Olympic swimmer seriously. Wouldn't they just chirp/laugh and clap their fins together and swim off in that situation?

hahahaha!

He even apologised straight away.
Quote:
The Twitter user Reilly_69 made a serious of insulting comments about Daly, including a claim that he would drown the superstar teenager. It is believed this tweet resulted in his arrest.
Quote:
When news of the insensitive tweet spread, Rileyy69 attempted to apologise.

He tweeted: '@TomDaley1994 Iím sorry mate i just wanted you to win cause its the olympics Iím just annoyed we didnít win Iím sorry tom accept my apology.'

He later added: 'please i donít want to be hated Iím just sorry you didnít win i was rooting for you pal to do britain all proud just so upset.'

He's looking at a maximum fine of £2,500.

It's pathetic.

If so, that is something that Whites in the UK can and should IMMEDIATELY taking
advantage of. Any UK legal specialists out there that can answer? Examples of case law, anything?

**edit**

I see that he is being charged with Malicious Communication. Is that predicated upon a specific threat to a person, or just being generally nasty?

Whites act pathetic over sports.

Almost all of them put their stupid sports team, or whoever they're rooting for, over their own race.

This is true!

I still wouldn't rule out UFOs or life on other planets completely though, even if I don't believe in them myself. When your govt. kicks up such a fuss about Area 51, one has to wonder what they're hiding.

I'm begining to think these all these saluters are hired hands. None of them can do a proper one.

I'm no expert but:

http://www.harassment-law.co.uk/law/malcomm.htm

extract:
Quote:
(1) Any person who sends to another person
(a) a letter, electronic communication or article of any description which conveys
(i) a message which is indecent or grossly offensive
(ii) a threat or
(iii) information which is false and known or believed to be false by the sender or
(b) any article or electronic communication which is, in whole or part, of an indecent or grossly offensive nature,
is guilty of an offence if his purpose, or one of his purposes, in sending it is that it should, so far as falling within paragraph (a) or (b) above, cause distress or anxiety to the recipient or to any other person to whom he intends that it or its contents or nature should be communicated.

(2) A person is not guilty of an offence by virtue of subsection (1)(a)(ii) above if he shows
(a) that the threat was used to reinforce a demand made by him on reasonable grounds and
(b) that he believed, and had reasonable grounds for believing, that the use of the threat was a proper means of reinforcing the demand.

(2A) In this section 'electronic communication' includes _
(a) any oral or other communication by means of a telecommunication system(within the meaning of the Telecommunications Act 1984 (c12)); and
(b) any communication (however sent) that is in electronic form.

(3) In this section references to sending include references to delivering or transmitting and to causing to be sent, delivered or transmitted and 'sender' shall be construed accordingly.

(4) A person guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable on summary conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, or to both.
(my bolding) which, I think, means that if it is posted on a public medium, such as Twitter, anyone can who sees it can be offended by it.

....of course, when black MP Diane Abbott posted something in public that was offensive to white people in general, those of us who complained were told to jog on.

I don't know that, hence my open mind.

Gliese 581d is 20 light years away, which means that if there were any creatures living on Gliese 581d that were intelligent enough to build spaceships capable of travelling at the speed of light (something that we here on earth can't even come close to), it would still take them 20 years to get here travelling at a rate of 670,616,629 miles per hour.

We do not know what the theoretical life forms need to survive. Therefore, we do not know what planet provides those conditions. Therefore it is impossible to know if they exist.
Was just watching an episode on TV with the boys the other week - that covered this very subject. The discovery of massive amounts of life, where according to our understanding of life there should be NONE, rocked the scientific world. This discovery was only made 40 or so years ago.

Quote:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrothermal_vent

Previously, benthic oceanographers assumed that vent organisms were dependent on marine snow, as deep sea organisms are. This would leave them dependent on plant life and thus the sun. Some hydrothermal vent organisms do consume this "rain," but with only such a system, life forms would be very sparse. Compared to the surrounding sea floor, however, hydrothermal vent zones have a density of organisms 10,000 to 100,000 times greater.

Hydrothermal vent communities are able to sustain such vast amounts of life because vent organisms depend on chemosynthetic bacteria for food. The water that comes out of the hydrothermal vent is rich in dissolved minerals and supports a large population of chemo-autotrophic bacteria. These bacteria use sulfur compounds, particularly hydrogen sulfide, a chemical highly toxic to most known organisms, to produce organic material through the process of chemosynthesis.

The ecosystem so formed is reliant upon the continued existence of the hydrothermal vent field as the primary source of energy, which differs from most surface life on Earth which is based on solar energy. However, although it is often said that these communities exist independently of the sun, some of the organisms are actually dependent upon oxygen produced by photosynthetic organisms. Others are anaerobic as was the earliest life.

The chemosynthetic ecosystem surrounding submarine hydrothermal vents were discovered along the Galapagos Rift, a spur of the East Pacific Rise, in 1977.

Active hydrothermal vents are believed to exist on Jupiter's moon Europa, and ancient hydrothermal vents have been speculated to exist on Mars
We are still learning about the possiblities and parameters required for "life" to exist. With the size of our own galaxy, let alone the universe, I believe it to be absolute ignorance to believe there is no life out there, or how advanced it is.

Hmmmm, makes me think that we really do need to find Racial Nationalist Lawyers. If the laws can be applied to us, the reverse is also true.

From reading that, it appears to be a "catch all" intended to prosecute people that say upopular things.

Oh, I don't rule out the possibility of some sort of life on other planets, whatever form it might take.

However I would be very surprised if something human-like had evolved on other worlds.

it's always possible given the right conditions; but even then the odds aren't that good that extraterrestrials would resemble humans.

We are only one of the thousands of different species that inhabit this planet, and when we have unlikely creatures here like the platypus, then there is no telling what would evolve on a different world.
